    What's the name of the pattern? Are all of the yellow pieces applique?

    They look great all together like that.

    I was thinking that some brown or rust from the flower pedals would make a nice color for the sashing. Hope that's the color of the pedals, it is hard to tell true colors from digital pix sometimes.

    I saw one by that pattern today at quilt guild. We had a trunk show and the speaker had made one. She used a light background, but I love yours. I bet her quilt had 25 blocks. It was very eye catching. go for it.

    I love the blocks with no sashing. The flowers just seem to float. Make more blocks if you need a bigger size. Beautiful!

    Keep going! I might add yellow sashing, which can cover a multitude of things, and also set off the yellow on the flower....

    The colors are just fine. I would use a light color for sashing since the green is so dark.

    I like it but I think sashing is needed.
